I have seen the future. It is here, and it is bleak. I hate to use actual numbers, because we're more about the feel of things, but this is painful. Your future Cubs. Brett Jackson has struck out like 18 times in 32 at-bats (a .563 average!). Josh Vitters, the third baseman of the present/future, or "the new Gary Scott," is hitting roughly .100. Starlin Castro, the shortstop of the present/future/never, has taken a nosedive since June. Wait, there's more! Matt Garza, your stud pitcher, is done for the year.

Waiting for Derrick Rose to come back to the basketball court is the ultimate test of patience for Bulls fans. The end of the 2012-13 regular season is almost here, and the closest anyone has gotten to seeing D-Rose play has been in practice and during pregame shootarounds. Everyone wants to know: When is Rose is coming back? Sportswriters get that question from friends and family a few times a day, if they're lucky. On most days, it's more. So you might think for Rose's teammates, the questions about when he's coming back would be a huge distraction.
